(ANNOUNCER)>> TODAY WE'RE GIVING YOU AN INSIDERS LOOK INTO WHAT IT TAKES TO REBUILD AND UPGRADE GM'S FOURL-60-E. WE'RE GOING TO THE GUYS THAT DO THIS WORK FOR A LIVING TO TAKE SOME OF THE MYSTERY OUT OF WHAT HAPPENS WHEN AN

AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION GETS REBUILT. IT'S ALL TODAY HERE ON TRUCK TECH.

(RYAN)>> HEY GUYS, WELCOME TO TRUCK TECH. TODAY WE'VE GOT OUR '93 CHEVY 1500 BACK IN THE SHOP, OUR LOW BUCK SPORT TRUCK. NOW WE'RE DOING A LITTLE BIT OF WORK IN THE ENGINE BAY, CLEANING THINGS UP, AND MAKING IT READY FOR THE INSTALLATION OF OUR NEWLY ASSEMBLED AND

MILDLY BUILT 383 ENGINE. NOW IT STARTED OUT AS A STROKER SHORT BLOCK THAT WE ADDED A DECENT PAIR OF CYLINDER HEADS TO ALONG WITH A PERFORMANCE CAM SHAFT.

(KEVIN)>> ANOTHER UPGRADE WE DECIDED TO THROW ON WAS THE FAST MULTIPORT TOP END KIT. AND WE ALSO OPTED FOR FAST PERFORMANCE COIL AND IGNITION BOX. THE FAST ECU IS IN BEHIND THE FIREWALL WITH THE WIRING HARNESS RUNNING THROUGH, MAKING EVERYTHING SEE EACH OTHER WITH ONE BIG HAPPY FAMILY OF COMPONENTS. NOW THE PLUGS ARE ALL MULTIPIN PROFESSIONAL OE LOOKING PLUGS, AND THIS IS A RELATIVELY SIMPLE BOLT ON PERFORMANCE UPGRADE. SO WHILE RYAN'S TACKLING ANOTHER PROJECT I'M GONNA TAKE CARE OF SOME OF THIS WIRING THAT'S LEFT OVER.

(RYAN)>> NOW THAT PROJECT THAT KEVIN IS TALKING ABOUT IS THE FRESHENING UP OF OUR FOURL-60-E FOUR SPEED AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION.

NOW REBUILDING ONE OF THESE THINGS ISN'T ROCKET SCIENCE, BUT IT DOES TAKE A FEW SPECIAL TOOLS AND A LITTLE BIT OF KNOW HOW. SO RATHER THAN TRY TO TEAR INTO THIS THING OURSELVES, BUY SOME SPECIAL TOOLS, SPEND A COUPLE OF DAYS REBUILDING IT, WE'RE GONNA TAKE IT TO A LOCAL EXPERT WHO CAN KNOCK IT OUT, GET IT DONE QUICKLY AND CORRECTLY SO WE CAN GET THIS THING BACK ON THE ROAD. BUT WE ARE GONNA TAKE YOU GUYS ALONG FOR THE RIDE TO

SHOW YOU WHAT HAPPENS. SO WE MADE IT DOWN TO OUR LOCAL COLEMANTAYLOR TRANSMISSION SHOP JUST A FEW MILES FROM OUR PLACE. NOW THESE GUYS REBUILD AND REPLACE TRANSMISSIONS ALL DAY LONG. IN FACT THIS SHOP KNOCKS OUT ABOUT 60 A MONTH. NOW THE GUY WE BOUGHT OUR TRUCK FROM SAID THAT TRANSMISSION HAD BEEN GONE THROUGH AT ONE TIME, BUT WE'RE NOT SURE WHAT THAT MEANS OR HOW LONG AGO THAT WAS. SO MAYBE THESE GUYS CAN HELP US OUT.

NOW MOST PEOPLE, CAR GUYS INCLUDED, WOULDN'T EVEN THINK ABOUT TACKLING A JOB LIKE THIS BECAUSE AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSIONS ARE COMPLICATED AND THEY CAN BE DIFFICULT TO UNDERSTAND.

(STUART)>> REALLY THE BIGGEST MISCONCEPTION IS WHAT WE ACTUALLY DO INSIDE THE TRANSMISSION.

IT'S NOT SOMETHING PEOPLE CAN SEE AS FAR AS REBUILDING

THE PIECES INSIDE.

(RYAN)>> OUR LEAD TECH, JAMIE WISE, OBVIOUSLY LIKES WHAT HE DOES. I LOVE DOING THIS BECAUSE OF BEING ABLE TO TAKE SOMETHING APART AND PUT IT BACK TOGETHER AND MAKING IT WORK, THE CHALLENGE OF IT.

(RYAN)>> NOW TEARDOWN HAPPENS QUICK AND HE KEEPS ORGANIZED BY PUTTING THE HARD PARTS ON HIS TRANSMISSION INTERNALS, CHRISTMAS TREE LOOKING RACK BECAUSE THE MAJORITY OF THESE HARD PARTS GET CLEANED, INSPECTED, AND REUSED. WHILE THINGS LIKE CLUTCHES AND SEALS, WELL THEY HIT THE TRASH PILE.

NOW JAMIE'S BEEN DOING THIS A WHILE. IN FACT, HE'S BEEN AT IT FOR ABOUT 30 YEARS, AND HE'S REBUILT HUNDREDS IF NOT THOUSANDS OF THESE TRANSMISSIONS. HECK HE CAN PROBABLY DO IT WITH HIS EYES CLOSED. NOW WE DIDN'T TELL HIM THAT SOMEBODY HAD OVERHAULED THIS TRANSMISSION SOMETIME IN ITS PRIOR LIFE, BUT IT ONLY TOOK HIM A FEW SECONDS FOR HIM TO REALIZE SOMEBODY'S CRACKED INTO IT BEFORE, AND IT WAS MORE THAN ONE CLUE THAT GAVE IT AWAY.

(JAMIE)>> VALVE BODY BOLTS IN THE WRONG PLACE, AND THE PARKING PULL ROD, ONE BOLT MISSING OUT OF IT JUST LAYING IN THE BOTTOM OF THE PAN. SO THAT TELLS ME SOMEBODY'S BEEN MESSING WITH IT. THAT LOOKED GOOD DIDN'T IT.

(RYAN)>> NOW WITH ALL OUR INTERNAL PARTS ON A RACK THAT ARE POSSIBLY GONNA GET REUSED, JAMIE SLIDES THEM INTO A HEAVY DUTY INDUSTRIAL STEAM CLEANER. THAT'LL MAKE INSPECTION THAT MUCH EASIER.

NOW OBVIOUSLY THESE GUYS HAVE BUILT THEIR FAIR SHARE OF FOURL-60'S, AND I DOUBT THERE'S ANY PARTS INSIDE THOSE TRANSMISSIONS THAT YOU CAN'T FIND IN THIS BACK ROOM FULL OF PARTS AWAITING THE REBUILD PROCESS. BUT FOR NOW LETS GO CHECK OUT THE PARTS THAT ARE GOING

INSIDE OUR TRANSMISSION.

NOW THE MASTER REBUILD KIT THAT'S GOING IN OUR TRANSMISSION CAME FROM TCI, AND IT INCLUDES EVERYTHING WE NEED. NEW FILTERS, SEALS, GASKETS, ORINGS, ALL THE SMALL PARTS WE NEED, ALONG WITH NEW FRICTIONS AND STEELS, A NEW BAND, A FEW SMALL PARTS TO IMPROVE THE SHIFTING. WE ALSO PICKED UP A NEW SERVO AND A BOOST VALVE TO BUMP LINE PRESSURE, AND A 10 VEIN BILLET PUMP ROTOR UPGRADE ALONG WITH ENOUGH FLUID TO GET US UP AND RUNNING. NOW FOR MOST PEOPLE, A STOCK REBUILD IS ALL THEY'RE AFTER, BUT WE WANT TO BACK UP OUR BUILT ENGINE WITH

A BUILT TRANSMISSION. STUART AND THE GUYS WERE ACCOMMODATING.

(STUART)>> NORMALLY WE FURNISH ALL THE PARTS. IN YOUR CASE YOU HAD SOME SPECIALTY STUFF FROM TCI THAT'S PERFORMANCE STUFF. AND WE DO PERFORMANCE UPGRADES AND THAT KIND OF WORK ALSO, BUT NORMALLY ON THE VEHICLES THAT WE'RE WORKING ON IT'S BACK TO THE FACTORY SPECIFICATIONS.

(RYAN)>> NOW THE TRANSMISSION INTERNALS GOT CLEANED IN THE STEAM CLEANER, BUT THE

TRANSMISSION CASE WAS A LITTLE TOO LARGE.

SO COREY CLEANED UP BY HAND IN A SOLVENT TANK. AND WITH ALL THE INTERNALS CLEAN, NOW IT WAS TIME FOR

INSPECTION AND REASSEMBLY.

(ANNOUNCER)>> WHEN WE COME BACK, WE'LL START ADDING PARTS IN OUR FOURL-60-E REBUILD. AND LATER WE'LL VISIT BULLY DOG'S HEADQUARTERS IN IDAHO.

(RYAN)>> HEY GUYS, WELCOME BACK TO TRUCK TECH. NOW HERE AT OUR LOCAL TRANSMISSION SHOP, JAMIE OUR LEAD TECH, IS REBUILDING OUR FOURL-60-E USING OUR KIT FROM TCI. NOW WE'RE ALSO GOING TO BE THROWING SOME NEW PARTS AT THIS THING. NEW SOLENOIDS, BUSHINGS, BEARINGS, VALVES, SPRAG CLUTCHES, AND A NEW SPEED SENSOR, BUT WE'RE ALSO UPGRADING TO FIVE PINION FRONT AND REAR PLANETARY SETS, WHICH IS OBVIOUSLY STRONGER THAN THE FACTORY FOUR PINION VERSION. WE'RE ALSO GOING WITH A NEW SUN SHELL. THIS THING'S CALLED THE BEAST. IF YOU COMPARE IT TO THE FACTORY PIECE, YOU CAN SEE WHY. THERE'S A LOT MORE MATERIAL HERE IN THIS HUB AREA, AND THAT WILL PREVENT THIS FROM HAPPENING WHERE THE HUB GETS

RIPPED RIGHT OUT OF THE CENTER OF THE SUN SHELL. NOW THAT'S A COMMON FAILURE POINT, ESPECIALLY IN HIGHER HORSEPOWER APPLICATIONS. AFTER INSTALLING NEW SEALS ON THE LOW AND REVERSE

CLUTCH PISTON, JAMIE INSTALLS IT INTO THE TRANSMISSION CASE.

IT'S THE FIRST PART THAT GETS INSTALLED. LOOKING UP FROM THE BOTTOM OF THE CASE PROVIDES A UNIQUE PERSPECTIVE.

HE FOLLOWS THAT WITH OUR FIVE PINION REAR PLANETARY UPGRADE. THEN INSTALLS CLUTCHES AND STEELS. NOW THE STEELS GET LOCKED INTO THE CASE BY THE TABS, AND HE ALTERNATES THE STEELS WITH THE FRICTION DISCS, OR CLUTCHES.

THEN HE JUST KEEPS ON STACKING PARTS, BUILDING UP A TRANSMISSION LAYER BY LAYER BY ADDING THINGS LIKE THE SUN GEAR AND OUR UPGRADED SUN SHELL. AND JUST LIKE WHEN BUILDING AN ENGINE AND USING ASSEMBLY LUBE, WELL THE TRANSMISSIONS GET THE SAME TREATMENT. THIS IS AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION ASSEMBLY LUBE. AND WHAT IT DOES IS PREVENT METAL TO METAL CONTACT ON FIRST START UP BEFORE THE OIL PUMP HAS A CHANCE TO CIRCULATE FLUID. THEN INSTALLS THE FRONT FIVE PINION PLANETARY UPGRADE. AFTER THAT THE OUTPUT SHAFT GETS INSTALLED FROM THE BOTTOM OF THE CASE UP. IT JUST TAKES A LITTLE PERSUASION.

NEXT HE LOADS THE INPUT SHAFT AND DRUM ASSEMBLY WITH MORE NEW CLUTCHES AND STEELS. BUT BEFORE HE INSTALLS THE ASSEMBLY HE DOES A LITTLE PRESSURE CHECK. AND HE'S USING COMPRESSED AIR TO DO WHAT FLUID WOULD NORMALLY DO UNDER NORMAL OPERATING CONDITIONS. AND THAT WE HE CAN VERIFY THAT THERE'S NO DAMAGED SEALS OR ANYTHING, AND ALL THE CIRCUITS ARE WORKING CORRECTLY BEFORE HE INSTALLS IT. HE ALSO PERFORMS A VACUUM TEST ON THE VALVE BODY TO VERIFY THAT INDIVIDUAL CIRCUITS IN THE VALVE BODY ARE WORKING CORRECTLY. AND AFTER SEALING THE PLATE TO THE VALVE BODY, HE SIMPLY TURNS THE PUMP ON AND CHECKS TO SEE HOW MUCH VACUUM IT WILL HOLD. AT 12 INCHES OF VACUUM, HE JUST WASN'T HAPPY WITH. SO AFTER A QUICK REPAIR HE DOES A RETEST.

THIS TIME SPOT ON. AND WITH ALL THAT DONE HE CAN INSTALL THE NEW WIRING HARNESS, THE VALVE BODY, THE PAN, AND START BUTTONING THIS THING UP CAUSE HE'S COMING DOWN THE HOME STRETCH. NOW THE GUYS AT COLEMANTAYLOR WERE GREAT TO WORK WITH. WE ALL GOT TO SEE WHAT WAS INVOLVED IN A TRANSMISSION OVERHAUL, AND THEY GOT A LITTLE INSIGHT INTO THE SOMETIMES SLOW AND TEDIOUS WORLD OF TV PRODUCTION. AND I'M THINKING JAMIE'S GLAD WE'RE NOT THERE EVERY DAY TO SLOW DOWN HIS PROGRESS.

(JAMIE)>> THAT'S IT FELLAS.

(ROB)>> IN JUST A FEW HOURS YOU CAN HAVE IT DONE?

(JAMIE)>> WITHOUT YOU IN A COUPLE HOURS I'D BE DONE!

(RYAN)>> HEY GUYS, WELCOME BACK TO TRUCK TECH. NOW WHEN WORKING ON A TOYOTA, MECHANICALLY ANYWAY, THINGS ARE PRETTY STRAIGHT FORWARD.

BUT WHEN IT COMES TIME TO TUNING OR PROGRAMMING THE ENGINE'S COMPUTER, WELL IT'S NOT SO STRAIGHT FORWARD. ENGINEERS AT BULLY DOG DID WHAT SOME THOUGHT WAS IMPOSSIBLE, FINALLY TAP INTO THE TOYOTA FACTORY CODE FOR BETTER PERFORMANCE AND FUEL ECONOMY.

(ADRIAN)>> THE TOYOTA COMMUNITY IS SCREAMING FOR A TUNER. YOU SEE IT ON THE FORUMS, ON THE WEBSITES, EVERYWHERE, AND THEY'RE GONNA BE EXTREMELY EXCITED TO HAVE THIS PRODUCT AVAILABLE TO THEM.

(KEVIN)>> NO MORE EXCITED THAN THIS GUYS. TC DIETER'S TACOMA VSIX SPORTS A TRD SUPERCHARGER. AND HE LOANED HIS TRUCK FOR THIS FIRST EVER FIELD TEST.

(TC)>> A LOT OF PEOPLE SEE A TOYOTA TACOMA LIKE THAT, AND THEY JUST THINK OH, IT'S JUST A LITTLE TOYOTA. BUT THE SUPERCHARGER PEPS HER UP A LITTLE BIT.

(RYAN)>> AND BULLY DOG ENGINEERS WILL PEP IT UP EVEN MORE BY TUNING HERE AT BULLY DOG DAYS AND LATER AT THE THEIR FACILITY.

(TC)>> LETS GO BULLY DOG.

(KEVIN)>> BUT JUST WHERE DOES ALL THIS BREAK THROUGH TECHNOLOGY COME FROM.

(CINDY)>> BULLY DOG, THIS IS CINDY.

(KEVIN)>> WE'RE INSIDE THEIR HEADQUARTERS WHERE AN ARMY

OF ENGINEERS, DEVELOPERS, AND RACERS DESIGN, BUILD, AND TEST PERFORMANCE TUNERS, TURBOS, COLD AIR KITS, AND EXHAUST PRODUCTS. THEY'RE LOCATED IN AMERICAN FALLS, IDAHO, FOUNDED BY THREE BROTHERS WHO'S LOVE OF FARMING GREW INTO A PASSION FOR HIGH PERFORMANCE.

(MICHAEL)>> THIS TRACTOR IS KIND OF WHERE IT ALL STARTED.

(RYAN)>> BROTHERS MICHAEL, PHIL, AND DARYL KLAUSSEN LAUNCHED BULLY DOG 16 YEARS AGO OUT OF THIS METAL SHED. IT WAS A PROPANE INJECTION SYSTEM THEIR FATHER CAME UP WITH THAT GOT THEM STARTED. TODAY HIGH TECH ENGINEERING IS THE CORE OF THE BUSINESS.

(PHIL)>> IT TAKES US A LOT OF TIME AND A LOT OF EFFORT TO GET INTO VEHICLES.

AND THE GUYS THAT WE HAVE HERE ARE KEY TO WHATEVER WE DO.

(MICHAEL)>> THIS IS OUR ENGINEERING DEPARTMENT.

(RYAN)>> IT TAKES YEARS TO DEVELOP A TUNER. FACTORY MODULES ARE LITERALLY CRACKED OPEN AND PROBED, MAPPING HUNDREDS OF FACTORY FUNCTIONS FROM AIR AND FUEL MANAGEMENT TO TRANSMISSIONS CONTROLS TO EVEN WHEN THE HEADLIGHTS SHUT OFF. FROM HERE ENGINEERS WRITE NEW CODE TO IMPROVE ON OEM PARAMETERS.

(MICHAEL)>> WE DO THE R&D, WE BUILD THE BOARDS, DO THE BOARD LAYOUTS, BUILD THE FIRST FEW BOARD, AND THEN WE

USE A CONTRACT MANUFACTURER TO MAKE OUR BOARDS FOR US AFTER THE THING IS PERFECTED. AND WE DO ALL THE PROGRAMMING OF THE HARDWARE IN HOUSE WITH OUR SOFTWARE.

(KEVIN)>> THEY ALSO DESIGN HIGH FLOW COLD AIR SYSTEMS. DOWN IN THE R&D SHOP THE GUYS ARE DEVELOPING ONE FOR A NEW DODGE RAM. A FARO ARM PROVIDES THE VIRTUAL SIMULATION. IN THE DESIGN PHASE DATA CLOUDS AND VECTOR LINES ARE COLLECTED AND IMPORTED INTO THE CAD CAM SOFTWARE. ONCE FLOW TESTING AND STRESS ANALYSIS IS DONE,

BULLY DOG USES THREE DIMENSION PRINTERS. ONE FOR SMALL PARTS AND ONE FOR LARGER PIECES. AND WHAT WOULD NORMALLY TAKE WEEKS TO HAVE PROTOTYPED NOW TAKES A MATTER OF HOURS.

(CRAIG)>> WE HAVE INSTANT PROTOTYPES THAT WE CAN TEST FOR FIT, FORM, AND FUNCTION. WE JUST PULLED THIS OUT OF THE THREED PRINTER. WE ASSEMBLED IT AND NOW WE'RE GONNA TEST FIT IT IN THE TRUCK. THINGS CAN GET DESIGNED IN A WEEK AND GO OFF TO GET QUOTED FOR PRODUCTION.

(MICHAEL)>> THESE PROTOTYPING MACHINES ARE BECOMING VERY IMPORTANT FOR US TO LEAD THE WAY, FIRST TO MARKET SO THE CONSUMER HAS SOMETHING RIGHT AWAY WHEN THEY BUY A NEW VEHICLE. THAT'S THE FUNNEST TIME TO DO IT IS WHILE IT'S STILL FRESH IN YOUR HANDS.

(KEVIN)>> AND IN THE WORLD OF PERFORMANCE TUNERS, BULLY

DOG IS FIRST TO MARKET AGAIN WITH THEIR GT TPLUS TUNER FOR TOYOTA. THE REASON IT'S TAKEN FIVE YEARS TO PROGRAM LIES WITHIN THE FACTORY CONTROL MODULES. THESE ECM'S ARE DRIVEN BY TOTALLY DIFFERENT FORMS OF ENCRYPTION AND MATHEMATICAL ALGORITHMS. FOR INSTANCE, IF THE BIG THREE WERE PIGGY BANKS, WELL TOYOTA IS FORT KNOX, MAKING IT EXTREMELY DIFFICULT TO BREAK INTO.

(RYAN)>> ONCE BACK AT BULLY DOG, HORSEPOWER NUMBERS FOR THIS SUPERCHARGED FOURO WENT FROM A 268 BASELINE TO 294 WITH THE TUNE. THAT'S A 26 HORSEPOWER GAIN.

(DARYL)>> ONCE WE HAD THAT BREAK THROUGH WE HAVE HAD SO MUCH EXCITEMENT AROUND THERE BETWEEN ENGINEERS AND THE GUYS TUNING IT, WATCHING THE HORSEPOWER GO UP DAY AND DAY. I MEAN YOU'RE TALKING ONE HORSEPOWER INCREMENTS AS WE LEARN ONE MORE, AND THEN WE GET ONE MORE HORSEPOWER, ONE MORE, THAT'S HOW YOU GET THERE, BUT IT BUILDS INTO AN AWESOME PRODUCT.

(TC)>> IT WAS AWESOME, I'M REALLY HAPPY.

(KEVIN)>> SIX PONIES SHY OF THE 300 MARK, TC IS GONNA KEEP ON BUILDING HORSEPOWER IN HIS TACOMA ANY WAY HE CAN.

(TC)>> I'M THINKING ABOUT GETTING A LITTLE BIT SMALLER PULLEY AND I'M PROBABLY GONNA SEND MY TRUCK BACK TO BULLY DOG FOR SOME CUSTOM TUNING AND MAYBE A LITTLE SHIFT KIT ACTION, MAYBE SOME VALVE BODY UPGRADES, WE'LL SEE WHAT HAPPENS.

(ANNOUNCER)>> AFTER THE BREAK IT'S MORE FROM BULLY DOG'S DOG HOUSE, STICK AROUND!

(RYAN)>> DIESEL AND GAS POWERED TRUCKS TEAR UP THE

NATIONS FAIRGROUNDS EACH SUMMER, LIKE HERE AT THE 11TH ANNUAL BULLY DOG DAYS. ( )>> HELP HIM ON DOWN THE TRUCK LADIES AND GENTLEMEN.

(RYAN)>> IT'S A CHANCE FOR THE COMMUNITY TO CHECK OUT THE LATEST OFFERINGS AND SHOW OFF A LITTLE BIT WITH DYNO SHOOTOUTS, DIRT DRAGS, FREESTYLE MOTO CROSS EXHIBITIONS, AND SERIOUS DISPLAYS OF RAW PULLING POWER.

CRYSTAL DUNNING HAS NO PROBLEM RUNNING WITH THE BIG BOYS.

(CRYSTAL)>> MY TRUCK IS A 2010 DODGE CUMMINS 2500 THAT I'VE NAMED PERFECTLY FLAWED. JUST BECAUSE EVERYONE SAYS PERFECTION DOESN'T EXIST, AND EVERYONE HAS FLAWS, BUT HEY, I GUESS I'M PERFECT CAUSE I'VE GOT FLAWS. AND NOBODY LIKE THE SIXSEVENS TOO MUCH, THEY HAVE THEIR FLAWS, BUT IT'S PERFECT.

(RYAN)>> CRYSTAL TOOK SECOND PLACE IN WORK STOCK DIESEL, WHICH IS FINE FOR HER.

(CRYSTAL)>> PRETTY PROUD OF IT.

(KEVIN)>> BUT BACK AT BULLY DOG ONE WORD BEST DESCRIBES THEIR CORPORATE PHILOSOPHY.

(PHIL)>> WIN!

(MICHAEL)>> WIN!

(DARYL)>> I WOULD SAY WINNING IS PRETTY MUCH IN BUSINESS EVERYTHING.

(KEVIN)>> FROM THE DEVELOPMENT OF NEW PRODUCTS, THROUGH PRODUCTION, AND ON TO SHIPPING, BEING FIRST TO MARKET IS NUMBER ONE. AND WINNING AT THE TRACK IS IMPORTANT TOO, WHERE ENGINEER JARID VOLLMER SET A NEW WORLD RECORD LAST YEAR

AT THE DIESEL NATIONALS.

(JARID)>> OH IT'S EXHILARATING! WE GO OUT THERE ON THE NORMAL STREETS AND YOU DO 120. I DON'T WANT TO SAY THAT, MY BAD!

(RYAN)>> WHAT THEY LEARN AT THE TRACK TRANSLATES TO STREET PERFORMANCE TUNES AND OFF ROAD TUNES THANKS TO THEIR NEW POWER SPORTS DIVISION WITH TUNERS FOR SNOW MACHINES AND MORE. AND WHAT THE KLAUSSEN BROTHERS LEARNED ON THE FARM THEY'VE ALSO APPLIED TO THE HEAVY DUTY TRUCK MARKET, OFFERING UP PROVEN FUEL SAVING BIG RIG TURNERS, TURBOS, AND CERAMIC COATED MANIFOLDS THAT WON'T CRACK. AND FOR THE OWNEROPERATOR OR FLEET OWNER, THAT MEANS LESS DOWN TIME BECAUSE IT'S A PIECE THAT DOESN'T FAIL. PLUS TWOTENTHS OF A MILE PER GALLON IN FUEL SAVINGS.

(KEVIN)>> THE COMPANY IS ALSO THE INDUSTRY LEADER BY BEING CARB COMPLIANT, MAKING HUGE INVESTMENTS IN EMISSIONS EQUIPMENT LIKE THIS $200,000 DOLLAR SEMTECH TESTER. ( )>> WELL IF YOU WANT TO TUNE IT RIGHT NOW AND THEN RETURN IT TO STOCK LATER. ( )>> YES, SELECT RUN.

(KEVIN)>> AND THEY'VE ALSO INVESTED IN CUSTOMER SERVICE WITH A TECHNICAL SUPPORT STAFF READY WITH FREE DOWNLOAD UPDATES.

(ALEX)>> OUR TUNERS ARE PRETTY USER FRIENDLY. WE DO OCCASIONALLY GET THE CALLS OF SOMEONE THAT CAN'T

UPDATE THEIR COMPUTER. SO WE TAKE THEM ONTO OUR GO TO ASSIST PROGRAM AND THAT GOES THROUGH OUR WEBSITE. THEY CAN PUT IN THEIR NAME AND COMPANY EMAIL, AND THEN WE TIE INTO THEIR COMPUTER AND WE CAN SHOW THEM WHAT

WE'RE DOING SO THAT THE NEXT TIME THEY'LL BE ABLE TO SEE. A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE VISUAL, SO THEY GET TO UNDERSTAND WHAT WE'RE DOING AND HOW WE'RE DOING IT.

(MICHAEL)>> ALL THE THINGS THAT WE HAVE LEARNED IN

FARMING, WE HAVE TRIED TO BRING INTO OUR BUSINESS. WE MAKE SURE THAT THE PRODUCT IS RIGHT, AND THEN GOES OUT TO THE CUSTOMER. AND THEN OTHER PEOPLE CAN ENJOY THE FRUITS OF OUR LABOR.
